South West Trails


It's only a 70 km return trip to the Seal Rocks State Reserve but allow a full day to experience the wind power and rolling swell coming from the Southern Ocean - the nearest land to the west on the 40th Parallel is Rio Negro, Argentina.


Picnic and provisions are a must for visiting the west coast south of Currie. There is no shopping!!!

This area, accessed from South Road, has three very different walks each with great spots for a picnic: Calcified Forest Walk and Copperhead Cliffs Walk are in the Seal Rocks State Reserve; Cataraqui Shipwreck Memorial is found at the end of Pearson's Lane.
